Creating Windows shortcuts programmatically

I am using Delphi 3...

How does a programmer create Windows (32-bit) shortcuts programmatically?  I have a HTML file in (let's say) d:\mystuff.  The HTML file is named "hello.html".   I now want to create a Windows SHORTCUT link to this "hello.html" file, and I want the shortcut to appear in "c:\documents and settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs".

I know how to do this manually, with keyboard, dragging files, etc...  but I do not know how to create a shortcut via Delphi.

Thanks.
